“Self care is a way of living that incorporates behaviors that help you to be refreshed, replenish your personal motivation, and grow as a person. It’s the equivalent of keeping your car filled with gas so that you are ready to ‘motor’ when you want to go somewhere.”
- Counseling Center NC State University
“A special enjoyable event that is organized with the purpose of promoting well-being.”
